        Xcite Center

        The Xcite Center, located within Parx Casino®, is one the premier, "State of the Art", venues in the North-East United States. Built primarily for top level musical acts, the Xcite Center was designed to produce any kind of event that a client would like to create. Being able to accommodate up to 2,000 people, the event center can be configured as a seated concert venue or as a standing event center for large presentations such as the Bucks County Food & Wine Festival. The stage, being sixty-five-foot-wide, was designed with enough room to host the Philly Pops® Orchestra. The venue has a thirty-four-foot-wide video screen on stage and a sixteen-foot-wide screen on each side of the stage for advertisements and live video. The audio, video, and lighting systems were specially designed for the Xcite Center and has been used by every single artist since opening in Early 2018. The acoustics within the venue has been modified and designed to make the room as close to a studio feel as possible. Just in 2018 within the Xcite Center, Parx Casino® hosted artist and events such as Chicago, Elton John, Steve Miller, Joe Hand Boxing, CFFC, Reba McEntire, Rascle Flatts, and many, many more. We are proud to introduce The First Annual Bucks County Food & Wine Festival in the new, Parx Casino® Xcite Center.
